Part of the July community meet was a celebration of the samosa. Barry cooked these for the first time as part of the event. The event was a great success - great food and people in a lovely location.
Planting and food update
Frances has been expanding her planting and so the development of our growing areas continues. More to be added to this post but below highlights some of the progress.
We had a good potato crop this year while realised that planting in March will reduce the stress of heat and water of the height of summer.
We modified the zone 2 planting area to have some wind protection with trellis that will also allow plants to grow up them.
The patio area was completed with shade, water tanks and support for plants making it a nice space to sit in as well as good for growing plants.
In zone 4 we built and extra raised bed around the remains of an old tree trunk.
Frances and Barry Copping bought Xalet Pigall in 2015. They are working towards resilience and self-sufficiency.
